message 5: by Lobstergirl (new)

Lobstergirl I guess Claire Messud is one of those shapeshifters who goes back and forth between being American, Canadian, British, and French whenever the mood suits her?

Guardian, 2003: "Whether mischievously or incompetently, publishers submitted a number of authors who weren't eligible, three of whom would have been strong contenders. Claire Messud holds three passports, none of them British."

The years do fly by, non-readers don't seem to notice it as much, do they! They talk about stress here and stress there but they know NOTHING if they haven't tried to keep up with the award lists, the TBR mountains, and that burgeoning pile of Must Re-read Or Bust items.


message 14: by Booklovinglady (last edited Jul 11, 2013 08:08AM) (new)

Booklovinglady I never knew I owned so many Booker Prize nominees... 71 of them, no less. And I haven't even counted the winners, as they are not part of this list.
